What if we have large party and all of us can not fit into my vehicle, can I hire more than one driver?

Yes you can! You can hire more than 1 driver and we can caravan from stop to stop.  Please inquire for pricing.

What if I am driving a rental vehicle, can I still use your service?

Yes you can.  Advise your rental car company that you will be hiring a driver (they may require a copy of our driver’s license and they may charge you a small fee).

Please know our drivers do not provide credit cards to the rental agencies as our business license does not allow us to provide the vehicle for tours.

As many as seat belts are in the vehicle and up to 6 passengers plus the driver for $50/hour.  For larger groups of  7, 8 or 9 passengers, please inquire, as there is a rate increase.

Are tasting/tour fees included in our hourly rate?

No, you will be on your own for tasting/tour fees, however, most wineries will waive fees when a bottle of wine is purchased!  For tours/lunch, we recommend you make reservations and we can build the remainder of your itinerary around your tour/lunch time.
